Broadfoot injury blow for Rangers

Rangers defender Kirk Broadfoot
Broadfoot has been out injured since the middle of March

Rangers defender Kirk Broadfoot will be sidelined until November following surgery on his left foot.

The 24-year-old has had an operation to shave away part of a bone and have three screws inserted in his foot after a visit to a specialist in London.

Broadfoot will spend six weeks in a cast and faces two months of rest before beginning his rehabilitation.

Rangers understand the problem arose because of a previous stress facture failing to heal properly.

Scotland full-back Broadfoot has not played since Rangers' Co-operative Insurance Cup final defeat to Celtic in mid-March.
